Getting ready to Study

Starting at a new university can require a considerable amount of planning. This section provides good advice for effective structuring of your working day as a student.


An important aspect of beginning a new programme of study is to find out how, when and where you study most effectively.

One relevant consideration is whether you get more work done in the university library or at home.

You may find it helpful to plan your semester and the individual weeks in advance.

Also, be prepared for a relationship between students and teachers that may differ from what you are used to.
